The Clowns Around Us

Love this quote from a recent New York Times article on women in cryptocurrency.

Arianna Simpson, an early cryptocurrency investor, said the surge of interest in virtual currencies from male novices should remind women that it did not take expertise or a Ph.D. to thrive in the ecosystem.

“Women always question if they’re qualified,” she said. “But look at these clowns around us.”

As I’ve mentored young women over the years I always try to make a similar point, but I’ve never been able to capture it quite so succinctly and brilliantly.
